A Quick Update


Busy, Busy, Busy!

Hi Parents!

We have been very busy in our classroom!

Currently, we are in the midst of the Unit 4 math test, taking it in chunks!

In Reading, we are enjoying the Historical Fiction book Run Away Home and Be Free. This story nicely ties into an upcoming Social Studies unit on the movement of people across the United States.

We just wrapped up our Essay Unit in writing, and will begin our Information Writing Unit very soon!

After our Social Studies test on the U.S. Government, we will dig deeper into the Bill of Rights.

Science learning is all about the Sun, Moon and Earth with Mr. Bowen.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions!!
